Cruise News 2011

13. April 2011

Cruise Guernsey is delighted to announce that 77 liners are due to call at St Peter Port, Guernsey during 2011 season, 6 to the Isle of Sark and 3 at Alderney. The season will once again span from April to October. All Guernsey players involved in the logistics and passenger welcome and experience are very much looking forward to the season getting started.

In 2010 a final total of 51 cruise liners visited the Islands of Guernsey with over 44,000 passengers stepping ashore an increase in the previous year's total.  Many thanks to the lines for their continued support and to those visitors who disembarked onto our shores as part of a cruise itinerary. We hope you had an excellent time and will come back to visit us again soon.

The  St Peter Port Trails map  produced in English, German and French for the 2010 season, proved to be a valuable aide to our visitors many experiencing the  self guided walks around St Peter Port, and gave  a fascinating insight into the history of our beautiful capital town. The map is a welcome addition to the pocket guide to Guernsey .

To receive copies of the pocket guide in advance of your call, or a DVD and tourist information to assist you with port presentation, please contact us. Alternatively you may wish to talk to one of the team to ensure your product knowledge and on-board fact sheets are as relevant as possible. We would be delighted to help and can call you at your convenience to discuss, please contact us.

Guernsey also attended the Passenger Shipping Association one day forum in early March 2011. This gave the opportunity for one to one briefings with a number of lines who call to Guernsey. In order to achieve feedback as well as discuss and plan seasons ahead.
